Luna – A Birth Defect Resulted in Leg Surgery

6/6/17 – Luna – So young to have been through so much. Here is her story as told by our friend Lori Stephens. We agreed to pay for Luna’s required surgery which she had on May 25. She was in a lot of pain after the surgery; so much so that it took 1 hour to get her out of the car. She had her stitches removed and had her post surgery visit with the doctor on June 1. She is still not using her leg and we are quite sure that we will have her see Dr. Kern of Pawsitive Steps Rehabilitation & Therapy for Pets for an assessment. Please say a little prayer for this very sweet girl. We are committed to her full recovery. Luna will need a forever, loving home. Lori tells us that she is a small (35 lbs), friendly, and very energetic dog. If interested, contact Lori at: stephens.lori@yahoo.com ~ diana

“Luna and her littermate (Drizzy) were posted on 4Paws Village page on October 26, 2016 (Luna is in the back). The person who rescued them from a bad situation was moving in with relatives that day and could not take them. She had rescued the 2 pups earlier in the summer when she was at a party. The pups which were only about 12 weeks old at that time and were tied to the fence in the backyard with a belt. Unfortunately she did not have the money to vet them and could not find homes for them over the next 2 months that she had them.

I picked them up that night, vetted them and placed them with adoptive families. Unfortunately, one of the families fell on hard times and asked if I could take Luna in on a temporary basis. At that time, I noticed Luna was limping a little. It continued to get worse and I took Luna to Wilsons. Surgery was recommended.

I returned Luna to her family in late April when I was told they had housing. Also surgery was scheduled. Again, unfortunately, the family’s situation did not improve and they surrendered Luna to me. – Lori “luna 6:6:17
